‘You’ll regret it!’ EU Parliament erupts as Juncker SWIPES at UK ‘Brexit isn’t everything’

JEAN-CLAUDE Juncker has lashed out at the UK’s decision to leave the European Union as he addressed MEPs this morning, insisting Britain would “regret” Brexit.

The President of the European Commission said the referendum result marked a “very sad and tragic moment” for the EU but vowed to “keep moving”.He insisted “Brexit isn’t everything” in another savage dig at the vote to leave the bloc, which was backed by 17.4million people.

He said: “March 29 2019 – that will be the day when the United Kingdom will leave the EU.

“This will be a very sad and tragic moment in our history we will always regret this and I think that you will regret it as well soon if I might say.”

The chamber then erupted as MEPs applauded the remark.Mr Juncker continued: “Nonetheless, we have to respect the will of the British people but we are going to make progress, we will keep moving, we will move on because Brexit isn’t everything, it’s not the future of Europe – it’s not the be all and end all.”

He added: “I suggest we prepare very well for that date.”

The comments come after Nigel Farage ripped into Jean-Claude Juncker over his State of the Union speech during which he insisted the European Union would move towards greater integration despite Brexit.
